Growing up in Naples on or near the water, I have been passionate about fishing my entire life. As I matured as an angler, I realized that guiding was what I wanted to do. What I enjoy most about my profession as a fishing guide is teaching anglers of all ages new things.
I love to explain why the fish are congregating in a particular area or eating a specific bait and patiently show them the best techniques for catching them. When our trip ends, I want my customers to have caught fish and learned why and how they saw them.
Naples and Marco Island are filled with a unique system of bays, creeks, passes, and man-made structures, all of which hold fish at one time or another. Figuring out when and where the fish are going to be is what I constantly work at perfecting. I’m not the type of guide that provides his clients the “catch fish or your money back” guarantee, as I find this unnecessary.
There is a difference between catching any fish and targeting certain species. My trips are tailored to my client’s wants & needs so that catching their species of choice becomes my priority.
If my client does not have a species of choice or is new to fishing in the SW Florida area, then I happily use my expertise to search for the game fish that are most active during that time of year.
